Tobacco mosaic virus variants are used as nanoscaffolds for functional molecules such as fluorescent dyes, proteins or peptides. Such modified nanosticks are used as enzyme carriers for the investigation of enzyme complexes or for structuring surfaces and hydrogels supporting cell growth and differentiation.

We are also working on the BMBF-sponsored joint research project: Örtlich kontrollierte Steuerung des Zellbewuchses an okularen Implantaten durch aktive Beschichtung “BioSurf” (Controlled guidance of cell growth on ocular implants using biologically active coatings “BioSurf”) [mehr]
